Kim Jong Il's Feats Praised by Swiss Organization
Pyongyang, January 24 (KCNA) -- The Swiss preparatory committee for celebrating the Day of the Shining Star issued a statement praising the exploits of general secretary Kim Jong Il at its inaugural ceremony in Basel on January 19.

The statement said:

Greeting the significant Day of the Shining Star, birth anniversary of Kim Jong Il, in which the yearning for him is growing deeper, we are highly praising the undying feats of him who devoted himself to the building of a thriving socialist nation, happiness of the people, independent and peaceful reunification of the country and accomplishment of the human cause of independence.

Progressive humankind is boundlessly revering him as a distinguished leader and elder statesman of the world.

He smashed the moves of the imperialists and their followers to ignite a war and reliably defended the sovereignty of socialist Korea with his powerful Songun politics.

The DPRK became a country manufacturing and launching satellites and nuclear weapons state under his leadership.
